RWL 34 is a premium powder steel with an evenly distributed solidification structure, increasing fracture strength, allowing tempering to a higher hardness (HRC 60-62) without encountering the typical issues of brittleness or risk for fractures.

The handle is made from selected curly birch and reindeer antler. The knife comes with a sturdy vegetable tanned leather and has a lifetime guarantee.

Blade dimensions: 10 x 2.4 x 0.3cm RWL 34 blade
